I believe that the visual arts are transformative and experiential, empowering youth and adults alike. Art presents a unique way to express oneself, while also providing opportunities for positive risk-taking and problem-solving. Art is qualitative rather than quantitative, encourages multiple interpretations, and helps to build confidence and character. As an educator, I want to cultivate creativity, expression, and exploration, by emphasizing process and technique over the finished product, which, I believe, encourages experimentation over fear of making mistakes.

New York born and raised, but always on the lookout for my next adventure. I'm also a visual artist, bon vivant, and avid reader of futuristic dystopian novels.
